I slept through my Weight Watchers meeting on Saturday.  Somewhat intentional and not intentional at the same time.  I’ve been off track since I had my cold and it’s taking me a while to get back on track.  I did step on my scale though, and if I remember correctly, I think I am up 1.4 for the week.

I did a lot of meal prep this week, but I also didn’t track everything.  Like the 1/2 bag of sriracha potato chips that I picked up from Trader Joe’s.  As a side note, Marcia, I went looking specifically for the carrot “noodles” but they were all out of stock until the end of September – weird!

I am finishing up the end of my Ambassadorship with Premier Protein, and only have a few more shakes that they initially gave me.  The chocolate, caramel  and vanilla went fast, but the two remaining ones are two that I probably wouldn’t have with coffee or on their own – the bananas and cream and strawberries and cream.  Not that there is anything wrong with them, but I much prefer these flavors IN something, not by themselves.

I had a taste for pancakes and made up a batch of mock banana pancakes made by adding vinegar to the Premier Protein shake and using Splenda (or a knock off Spenda that Hannah bought).

The secret to any good pancake batter is to let the batter sit for at least 15 minutes – that gives the baking powder a chance to do its magic – you want all these bubbles – bubbles = fluffy pancakes.

I put this into the Weight Watcher’s recipe app, and one pancakes is 3 points, two if 5 points and three are 8 points.  Believe me, two are plenty – very filling!

Using a 1/3 cup measuring cup, I got 9 pancakes out of this recipe.

These are super light and fluffy, and I like how the bananas kind of caramelized in the pan.

Banana Buttermilk Pancakes

Adding vinegar to a Premier Protein shake turns it into a mock buttermilk.  So good!
Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes
Course Breakfast
Servings 9


  • 1 1/3 cups flour
  • 3 tablespoons Splenda
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teasp salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 11 ounce container Premier Protein bananas and cream
  • 2 tablespoons vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 medium bananas, sliced


  • In a bowl, mix the vinegar and Premier Protein shake together and let sit 5 minutes, or until thickened.  Beat in the eggs and vanilla.
    Put all the dry ingredients into a large bowl, add the mock buttermilk/egg mixture to the flour and stir, just until combined.  Let the batter sit for 15 minutes or longer.  
    Cook over medium low heat for 1-2 minutes per side - I poured the batter, then placed 5 slices of banana in the pancake, pressing down a bit so they would sink into the batter before flipping.

I am actually not feeling all that well today.  I woke up with an upset stomach for some reason.  Guess what I brought for lunch today?  Ramen noodles! šŸ˜›  That’s all I could think of that I had a taste for.  One of my bosses is out of the office the next three days so that’s why I am sucking it up and going to work.  I am hoping I’ll feel better as the day moves on.
